Writing and Linguistics Hosts Immigration Film Series
The Department of Writing and Linguistics is proud to sponsor a three-part immigration film series on September 14, 22 and 28.
The first film, “Welcome,” to be shown September 14, highlights the rampant immigration crises in the Middle East and Europe through the struggles of an average teenager with goals and aspirations not so different from many of our own students.
The second film in the series, “Documented,” to be shown September 22, focuses on the life of Jose Antonio Vargas, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, activist and filmmaker who visited Georgia Southern’s campus in spring 2016.
The final installment, “Immigration: Legality v. Humanity,” to be shown September 28, shows Vargas’ energetic and thought-provoking lecture.
The series hopes to raise the conversation about these important issues of identity and globalization in order to expand students’ cultural perspectives and to foster the University’s culture of engagement that bridges theory with practice, extends the learning environment beyond the classroom and promotes student growth and life success.
All films will be shown in the Russell Union Theatre from 6-8 p.m. on their respective dates. Proof of attendance is required and free popcorn will be provided.
